Among the reveals we're expecting to see three new iPhones: an updated version of the iPhone X, a larger version, and a cheaper, 6.1-inch LCD version, which a new leak suggests will be called the iPhone XC. Previously, Apple used the "C" suffix to bring out the iPhone 5C as a low-priced model alongside the iPhone 5S. It will keep the same design language as the original iPhone X (2017) but will bring incremental upgrades in terms of internal hardware particularly in terms of processor, battery and camera. Well, irrespective of where Apple launches this variant, it sure is going to attract a lot many people simply because of the fact that they will finally be able to insert two SIM cards in an iPhone and won't have to carry along two phones. The current and updated iPhone X that is set to be unveiled September 12 boast OLED screens, but if you're looking to save money, but still retain numerous features of the iPhone X, the cheaper version may be something to consider if you're looking for a worthy upgrade.

As per the information on the promotional image, Apple iPhone will support dual 4G and dual standby.

While the LCD model will come with a 6.1-inch display, the OLED models are said to come with 5.8 and 6.5-inch displays. We have also seen the iPhone XS Plus name being promoted in the marketing material prepared by telecom companies in China.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will most likely get some shine during the keynote.

Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared that the 6.1-inch iPhone model could support dual SIM cards while Economic Daily News claimed that the first iPhone with dual-SIM support is exclusive to China.

Apple is reportedly trying to limit the availability of the new iPhone Xr to estimate the demand for the more premium versions.

What's particularly interestingly about this weekend's leak, is that according to The Apple Post, the screenshots pictured may have leaked courtesy of Apple, itself.

At the product unveiling, which will be held at 1 p.m. EST in the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif., the star of the show may be a larger version of last year's iPhone X, which Bloomberg has reported could be called the iPhone Xs Max. Fortunately, most of the technical details one can think of have been unleashed as well, although the aforementioned web page is no longer available right now.

S is added for labelling new generation apple phones. Like last year, Apple is not expected to include Touch ID on this year's iPhones as well.

However, White said that because of the nature of the packed event, Apple "may have to wait until October" to introduce the new Macs.
